After months of meetings and planning sessions, NYC’s public bike share program -- Citi Bike -- is hitting the street this summer! Your outspoken support for better bicycling in the Big Apple helped to make this program a reality. Thank you!

Transportation Alternatives wants to be sure we continue to advocate for the needs surrounding your daily bicycle trips. With the roll-out of public bike share getting closer and closer, we’re interested in finding out how you plan on taking advantage of this great new public transit option.

How will YOU use Citi Bike?

Citi Bike will roll out with stations in Manhattan south of Central Park, Long Island City and in Brooklyn north of Atlantic Avenue, all the way up to Williamsburg and Greenpoint.

With more than half of all trips we make in New York less than two miles, bike share will be a NEW reliable and affordable way to get where you need to go.

In the coming year, we will continue to work hard to improve your daily bike experience and to expand bike share into neighborhoods across the city. As always, we will call on your voice and participation to help make better bicycling a reality.

Because of the support from New Yorkers like you, the bright blue Citi Bikes will soon be as iconic as a MetroCard or yellow cab. Get ready, get set…
